Is it like roller skating?

You need to have skates which fit your feet well. You have to keep your balance in the middle of your feet in order to shuffle forward and not fall.

Figure skating is simply skating with skates on the ice, and doing various moves both in the air and on the ice.

While they both have the word skate in them figure skating and roller skating are nothing alike. Ice skating in any form is hard to do. I would start by getting lessons at the local ice rink. It is not something you can just pick up. You need to practice. A lot!!!

Figure skating is nothing like roller skating. First off, to figure skate it takes figure skates. Not Roller skates, not even hockey skates. Figure skating skates are totally different. Also figure skateing takes place on ice as compared to roller skating. The main thing to remember during figure skating is the music. Always keep in beat.
